Student Orchestra Does Amazing Cover of Time and Breathe (Reprise)

August 18th, 2012 by admin

I just stumbled across an amazing video this morning. I was going to use it for next weeks ‘Pink Floyd Video of the Week‘ but couldn’t wait to share it, so I’m going to put it under the ‘Special Features‘ category, instead.

This video was posted only 2 days ago to YouTube and already has over 17,000 hits. The performance is from July 8th, 2012.

The Trinity Orchestra, which is an entirely student run ensemble from Ireland, performed this incredible cover.

Here’s more info from the YouTube page:

On 8 July 2012, the entirely student-run Trinity Orchestra returned with a new performance of their most adventurous and highly anticipated musical project: Pink Floyd’s iconic 70s progressive rock album ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ arranged for full orchestra, band, and singers.

Following 2011′s Daft Punk medley, this music video shows the full orchestral performance of “Time” and “Breathe (Reprise)” in Christ Church Cathedral as part of the 10 Days in Dublin Festival. The full set list included “Shine On You Crazy Diamond”, Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’, “Wish You Were Here” and “Comfortably Numb”.

Trinity Orchestra’s final performance of Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ will be on Saturday 1st September at 12.30pm, Main Stage, Electric Picnic 2012. For more information see http://electricpicnic.ie.

Trinity Orchestra is a voluntary student society and derive no financial benefit from the production of this video.

The Top 10 Pink Floyd Songs of All Time – The Results as Voted by You!

July 25th, 2012 by admin

The Results are In! The Top 100 Pink Floyd Songs of All Time

The results are now in from our poll in which we asked you to pick your 10 favorite Pink Floyd songs.

The poll was slightly different than most, because you had the option to pick up to 10, with a minimum of 1, as opposed to just having to pick your #1 favorite Pink Floyd song.

The poll lasted 1 month and had over 500 different people participate – Thanks to all who took the time to vote!

Without further ado, here are the results:

10. Sheep

(21%, 162 Votes)

9. Dogs

(23%, 177 Votes)

8. Brain Damage

(27%, 204 Votes)

7. Hey You

(32%, 245 Votes)

6. Money

(33%, 249 Votes)

5. Time

(37%, 280 Votes)

4. Echoes

(44%, 336 Votes)

3. Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I–V)

(46%, 349 Votes)

2. Wish You Were Here

(49%, 374 Votes)

Drum Roll Please












































1. Comfortably Numb

(57%, 434 Votes)

So Comfortably Numb wins! The margin wasn’t really all that close as you can see between 1st and 2nd, but their were some very close, almost last minute moves between some of the other songs and placements in the top 10. For example, Us and Them was holding the top 10 spot for a few weeks and ended up being bumped from the top 10 list completely to #12. I was also surprised to see how high Atom Heart Mother ranked in the list.

Here are the complete results:

Guide to Getting an Autograph From Roger Waters

July 15th, 2012 by admin

Guide to Getting Roger Waters Autograph

This is our first post to a new feature we’ve added to the site called “Special Features” which will contain unique posts like this one.

Here are tips if you are going to a Roger Waters ‘The Wall Live’ Show and wanting to get his autograph before the show.

  • Roger Waters comes into the parking garage. There is usually one near the back, and you will be tipped off when you see a few tour buses.
  • He shows up in a black SUV and signs through a window. DON’T PUT YOUR FACE, HANDS, OR ANY OTHER BODY PART THROUGH THE WINDOW. There is a body guard, and he WILL keep people in line. No hand shakes. The manager will tell you all of this, but you don’t want to ruin it for you or anyone behind you. The manager will make you line up.
  • For shows starting at 8:00, Waters will usually show up at around 5:30, and the masses don’t usually show up until 4:15-4:45. It is best to get there around 3:45.
  • He signs one item. It should be an album, ticket, or some other Floyd paraphernalia. HE DOES NOT SIGN SHIRTS. Here is a brief excerpt of what he said to people wanting autographs on his Facebook:
  • “I will no longer sign anything but albums which I will personalize. So pros be warned no more guitars, scratch plates, photos, drum heads or any of the rest of that crap, make room for the real fans.”

  • Photos are a bit more of a pain. He won’t look up and wait for you to take a picture. If you want a good picture something good to try is to get near him before he finishes the person before you and wait until he looks up to see the next person (YOU!). And have the camera ready. ALWAYS HAVE THE CAMERA READY. Buddying up is good.
  • Waters has a gold sharpy which is good for nearly everything you can get signed, so you don’t really need to bring a marker. I would anyway though. Always plan ahead.

The above was paraphrased from a post I found online – Thanks to reddit user DonQuixoteWindmill from the Pink Floyd forum on reddit for the tips.
